The Mock Court Trial, to be given under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church, in the Opera House, on Satur day evening, A-ril l"'b, promises to be an event of unusual interest.. Judging from newsparer reports of similar en tertainments, conducted by the pre sent management it would seem to be one of the most amusing things now offered for public patronage. It will be, in the first place, an exact reproduction of a court scene in meth ods and procedure ard on this ac count will be extreoily interesting to ladies and others, who have never at tended a real trial. Best of all will be the refined fun of the whole affair. With Hon, George J. Laßar presiding over the court, Miss Xitnema Brooks appearing as the broken-hearted plaintiff, Arthur Orton as the defendant, Col. Newton preisecu ting the case anel Capt. J. C. Johnson defending the accused, to say nothing of the brilliant array of court officers, witnesses and jurors, it is pretty cer tain we shall have all the comedy and reality of a court scene and enough wholesome fun to la-it a whole year Indeed, it is predicted by those in position to know, that from the open ing of the court to the close of the case the auidence will be kept keyed up to the point of convulsions by the unique proceedings. Wit, pathos, eloquence, laughable local hits and vagaries will be drawn upon without stint to keep up the cur rent of merriment. As an entertainment of innocent fun, conducted with mock dignity and with out the shade of offence to refined tastes, the Mock Trial will be as men tioned;above,an event cf unusual inter est.

EMPOR H T M, PA., THURSDAY APRIL 7, r.UO Hospital at Emporium a Necessity. One of the greatest moves to institute a Hospital at Emporium, was made a | couple weeks ago, when the PRESS came forward with a letter announc ing its intention to do all in its power to establish one here. Its worthy editor had gone so Tar as to locate the building and secured the nicebsary data to push the enterprise i.l >ng. As we all know, the proposed locution, building, etc., is all that can bo wished ! for and the co-operation of the various enterprises in this section which he ; Ins secured, certainly makes the p»o --| position one not to be easily thrown ; away. An institution of this kind is a | necessity here and, as we all know, 1 many an unfortunate individual has to i die simply becauoe he or she has not the speedy and proper care that they should have and would have were it possible to take the patient to a hos pital at once. Just a few instances as this world make the entire town feel glad. Of course such things cost money, but if properly managed it could be gotten in proper running order without injur ing any one financially. I sincerely hope the people of this town and county will forward, as I know they will do, and help as best they can to make this movement a success W. H. Busu, M D. Emporium, Pa., April 6th, 1910. Our people, very generally, we are pleased to note take kindly to the hos pital proposition. Let us ALL put our shoulders to the wheel and boost this laudable project. While there is hard work connected with it, we must re member that we are working for suf fering humanity and Dot to pile up wealth. As soon as some matters can be gotten into proper sbape it is hoped a meeting may be called of all inter ested parties No one person nor a dozen, can pull off this great public 1 necessity. All must unselfishly work j —including the ladies. The PRESS would like a public expression from more of our citizens. Eye Specialist. Prof. W. 11.

To the average man, an outing oi one day carries with it great pleaßnre, but when we are fortunate enough to have a whole week of such pleasure it inspires UB with new ambitions and breaks down the barriers that have us hedged in the work-a-day world. Such inspirations and ambitions were onr'a last week when we spsnt our outing at South Inland. South Island is (situated about twelve miles below Georgetown aud can be reached easily by land or boat and comprises an area ot twenty-three thousand acres. It is bounded on all sides by water, viz: Santee River, Santee Canal, Winyaw Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It is by far the great est piece oi property on the Atlantic coast, abounding in all kinds of game and fish. South Island was bronght into note by such men as President Cleveland, Admiral Evans and others, whose an nual visits were not only enjoyed by them but were looked forward to by the rice field darkies as one of the greatest events of their livee, and even now they tiike great pleasure in pointing out to you where "Mas Cleve. land" stayed. Mr. Wheeler now owns both South and North Island, comprising some thing over thirty thousand acres, which includes all buildings. A conservative estimate will place the number at one hundred, and the most of them good old dwellings. Mr. Wheeler is one of those big hearted, wholesoul, jolly fellows, who makes you feel at home aud with ease all the time, and his wife shares equal ly with him in her cousideration and attentions to the guests. She is a splendid type of the capabie and intel lectual American woman, yet with all, modest and unassuming.—The Marion Star, March 30,1910. Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wheeler will be remembered by the residents of Em porium and vicinity', having formerly lived in this place, where they have a host of friends who will be pleased to hear from them and of their popular ity in their Southern home.
